I have a 17mth old golden sebring (sebrite? - I forget!) bantam that started showing signs of listlessness a couple weeks ago. A week ago Saturday, we found her on her side, having a tough time walking and falling over. The other birds were starting to pick on her. I brought her inside, and have been feeding her since. She can't get the food on her own, can't seem to move her wings at all now, and has very limited movement of her legs, though can't stand. She can move her left leg a bit better than her right. Her droppings are normal looking. She does have head lice that are irritating her - especially since she can't really seem to preen/scratch. She can turn her head and will try to do limited preening. She doesn't seem to be in pain, but I'm not sure how to tell. We have another chicken (18mth buff orpington) that every couple months will restrict herself to a nesting box, has a pale comb, ruffled up feathers, decreased appetite and stops laying, but she typically comes out of it after coming inside for some tlc. I treated them with Wazine in their water (whole flock) last Wednesday, and did see some roundworms pass in the bantam. I'm not thinking Mareks, because the bantam doesn't exhibit all the symptoms I've been reading about (though they seem to be incredibly varied), and she came from a very reputable hatchery where I'm assuming she would have been vaccinated for it. I can't remember where, but I thought I'd seen that small roundworms could cause paralysis as well. A friend thinks the Buff Orpington may have coccidosis - maybe I've got a couple things going on? This is our first flock, and she was our first chicken, so I'm just really learning about all this. Any help with diagnosis, treatments, etc would be SOO appreciated. If the second chicken has coccidosis, can I treat them NOW, or do I need to wait after treating the flock with Wazine 17? For the second treatment for the roundworms, I read I should use Ivermectin - our local stuff has the percentages, but it's listed for sheep, etc - is it ok, or should I be looking for stuff specifically labeled for chickens? Also, is there any chance that my bantam will regain her movement again? She's eating LIKE A CHAMP and really doesn't seem to be suffering at all, so I'm willing to keep working with her, but if she's got no chance of improvement, I'll do what needs done. Thank you!!
